Fiona's Comments

Patrick seems to have a real confidence in his playing and this tune, and the rest of the quartet seems to feed off of it. A nice straight-ahead tune, challenging yet uncomplicated. A nice performance which ends very strong. Jazz from NYC.

About the Album

It's an original composition inspired by the emotional roller coaster he experienced on the day his daughter was born. This performance features Patrick on alto saxophone, Gerald Clayton on piano, Peter Slavov on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
